In every other post I used to write without organising my thoughts and all.
Maybe then someone told me to write bit after thinking.
So. Yes, I think.
I should give importance to my writings now on.
It wouldn’t be an Extempore type thing from now on.
Phew. Quite a lot Justification.
Now, This topic is really close to my heart.
Just because I was researching for quite a long time.
This is one of the most significant studies in my personal renaissance.
Why I chose this topic?
Well. You just see. Where you are going to be now, this will certainly take you into a different world.
You will start questioning your beliefs and thinking.
Maybe I’m too confident about this.
Well, I am.
Now, let’s begin.
What really is parallel reality?
That’s a tough thing to tell.
But, how about a image.
First see it.
Well. I must remind you that I’m not going to take this post to some astronomical or universe thing.
I’m going to relate it hugely with human cognitive psychology.
Means how his mind interpret things and how his perceptions and imagination clouds reality.
Now, the image.
Did you see the lady here?
And, in that dream she’s entering a different set of world.
I must say dreams are one of the most seductive things you’ll ever have.
And at the same time most fearful objects also.
Dreams happen in our sleep.
But, what about day dreaming.
Well this is where my blog post starts.
The imagination power of your brain is the way that you enter parallel reality.
This takes me to the real aspect.
How parallel reality is created?
To be honest.
It’s just practice.
When you start imagining things day and day out, you start associating yourself with it.
As days pass your association starts developing more and more.
With this your subconscious mind starts accepting this imagination to be your reality.
Now, this is tough to understand without examples.
Surely I will have few examples.
So, you’re browsing your favourite clothing brand online.
And. When you see a perfect dress.
You imagine that you’ll look nice.
You’ll look perfect.
Doesn’t that imagination happen?
Then at that moment you’re going to a parallel reality.
Why I say so?
Just because you’vent worn that dress neither you have seen it with your eyes in front of yourself but you still can percieve it in your imagination.
Isn’t it that thing going into different world and then wearing it dress.
Just because in reality your not wearing that dress.
And, when that dress comes you find not upto mark.
This is a daily life example.
Now, There are aspects related to this thing.
And, I would be as electic as possible.
We’ll walk down various paths and will see every thing which we daily do from an open and clear view.
So, let’s hope.
You don’t questioning your reality.
In this aspect, you should never make your career choice based on your imagination.
Just because it will ruin your life.
The more fantasies you have regarding a particular career the more likely you’re going to follow.
Have you read that story?
Where a bagpiper plays his pipe and all rats fall off the cliff just because they thought that music to be enticing.
Same happens regarding career.
You get so enticed with imagining yourself in that particular field that you completely miss yourself.
You forget what you like.
What you are good at.
And, start following a career just because imagination keeps you running on it.
The glamour of authority.
The smell of what things money can buy.
The fallacy that you would be happy after that dream come true.
On this course many students fail, many waste their years and then they realise that’s something they choose it wrongly.
But, it’s quite late.
Indian parents and students, I would say are perfect examples here.
Let’s move to Society and Relationships.
Our relationships and the society we live in.
We know that we’re imaginative.
But, don’t you think others are imaginative as well.
Maybe less or more than you.
So, how about their imagination affecting you?
I want to say that how about their parallel reality affecting your life.
Let’s take an example here as well.
An image I have.
(The girl who drew it is Nameera )
Now, I would like to interpret this image. (interpretation is mine 😅)
So, in this image you can see three different things of a single girl.
Initially the girl is getting abused or ridiculed by her parents.
This happens daily.
Her parents feed her with negative thoughts, affirmations and what not.
They abuse her, slap her.
Daily this happens.
But, why her parents do so?
Just because her parents are not satisfied with her.
She can’t keep up with their parallel reality.
The parents want her girl to be studious and smart.
They want her to be extroverted and talented like other girls.
But,she can’t fulfil any of their aspirations.
She can’t fulfil her parents dreams.
And. With this,
In the second side, when she is idle and reflects on it.
Her mind starts accepting all the abuses, all the negative things.
She starts accepting those things.
And, you can see how her brain dynamics change in the third side of image.
You can see how the colours of the brain has changed and how those things have become a burden.
Her heart is taken off and there’s a patch of emptiness there.
And, now her reality is nothing but her parents abuses.
Well, this image reminded me of my personal story.
Where I was ridiculed by my teachers and parents when I was really small.
I still remember those times, when I small boy was lost in thought and imagination.
Reflecting on various aspects of life except studying.
But, somehow I started to study and abuses started to end.
Still, critics are there, but I dont care now.
If I take this concept to Relationships then there’s also some friction.
Where one partner has different imagination and another partner has different thing on mind.
So, when these imaginations collide.
Body – Shamming. Divorces. Domestic Violence are few examples I can reflect upon.
Well, here I would say how you overcome their’s imagination.
Just because they’re comparing you with an imaginative female body where everything is fine.
Where you have zero spots on face.
No hair on body.
Tall and sleek.
They create a parallel reality of women.
That parallel reality when stands face to face with Real reality.
Then you have abuses.
That’s what I can say.
Now, third aspect.
It’s that of Sexuality and Romance.
Now, the trouble is here.
I’ve been researching about Male Sexual Behavior for the last few days.
I came upto this thing.
What i observed that Tina when she’s on my retina she’s a normal woman, a woman who is human like I am, she has same skin as mine, she has same hair as mine but the moment she is away from retina and goes to my imagination she becomes something else, she becomes an object, something perfect, something enticing.
(this is a excerpt from a story)
Why this happens?
That’s the whole topic.
Our imaginations are deceptive.
They create a different version of everything.
That’s why I tell you all that never imagine people and associate themselves in that imagination.
You would create a different story out of it.
And, just see how companies earn money through your parallel reality.
But, even if I know that I’m imagining.
I find it addictive.
I find it seductive.
Dopamine is the answer.
It is called the pleasure chemical.
When you start taking pleasure in your imagination then this chemical starts to rise and you fall in the trap.
You start having fantasies which are so different and away from reality that.
There’s no away to get you back on track.
This pleasure chemical is what creates objectification and lust.
I don’t want to blame dopamine because it’s necessary, but the mind which pairs this chemical with body of a human.
Pornography is the perfect way of deluding you.
A 2 dimensional video makes this dopamine crazy.
These days Instagram and Facebook images have taken you to parallel reality as well.
Now, question here arises.
If imagination and its advancement to Parallel reality is that negative.
Is it bad to have imagination?
Imagination is something which brings creativity.
And creativity is that thing which differentiates between you and me.
Everyone is different in his/her imagination.
All these Movie directors, painters, poets are imaginative people.
It’s because of imagination only that you can forsee things.
What really should we do?
This is a great confusion.
Because imagination is necessary and but it creates a parallel reality which isn’t good.
I think imagination should always be kept under control of intellect.
Under always the influence of thinking.
The pros and cons.
I will show you how.
Whenever imagination comes think whether it leads to fantasies or fears.
If it leads then, stop there.
If you don’t stop you’ll enter a parallel reality which is really seductive and disrupting.
Why this contradiction?
Why reality and imagination.
Are poles apart.
See this photo.
Leandro da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
Meditate her on smile.
She’s the western perspective of Yin and yang.
Her smile is seductive and compassionate at same time.
She bears hope and fear at same time.
That’s also reality.
Reality is nothing but present time.
And what adds dimension of time to it is your parallel reality.
Reality is nothing but ambiguity and uncertainty.
And what hope to your reality is not imagination but your work.
There is no dream which can satisfy you, there’s only work that can.
Yes. You use your imagination for your work.
Create mind maps, create graphs in your mind.
Make stories and documentaries.
Yes, be creative.
But, don’t create fantasies and fears.
That’s what Parallel reality does.
It will entice you, keep you in suffering and misery.
The day you break it.
Then you really are free.
I Have a Questionnaire.
1)What are your fantasies (dark/light) ?
2)What are your fears?
3)Do you question your parallel reality ?
4)Have you noted your feelings when you imagine?
And last question.
5) In, which reality are you living? (Real/Parallel)
These questions are for reflection towards your life.
Think about them.
